One of the biggest advantages of self - hypnosis is being able to reduce stress naturally. As you learn hypnosis, you will have the ability to unwind anytime you feel the need. Learning to turn the focus inside and really understanding at a deep level that you can control your ability to relax is an exciting feeling.
As those moments in life happen that in the past you might have caused you to stress, you will have the ability to decide how you will respond. I've had clients remark on how hypnosis has improved their meditation or prayer time, by being able to go to that still place in less time. To slow the thinking conscious mind so you can enjoy being in the here and now.
